Talented youngster Matthew Cudjoe has opened up about his desire to play for the senior national team, Black Stars after a breakthrough season in the Ghana Premier League. 

The 16-year-old joined Kotoko on a one-year loan spell and gave an impressive account of himself before the season was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He is famously remembered for his great display in 2-1 win against Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium.

With the game ending in a stalemate, Cudjoe, a second-half substitute, helped Kotoko win a penalty which was converted by Naby Keita.

According to him, he is patiently waiting for a call up to the Black Stars as he set his sight of making a difference with the team.

“I want to make a difference with the Black Stars and I am patiently waiting for the opportunity to showcase my talent. I know it would happen soon. I’m waiting for the day the national team coach would present to me an opportunity to excel,” he told the GNA Sports in an interview.

Anim Cudjoe has already played for the national under-20 team at the African Games in Rabat, Morocco, and was a revelation in the abortive league.
